Weekly Words To Inspire

Well Hello there July, it's nice to see you and the heat... I hope everyone's last week was good. I did complete my 5k. It wasn't pretty, but it was completed. Recently, I've gotten back into watching documentaries on Netflix. This time about food. So that's pretty much what has inspired this week's words. The common theme I get from everything I read and watch is that we have to educate ourselves. We cannot leave it up to the government or to Dr's to tell us what to do. It's up to us. I've read and watched some fascinating things in the last week. So if you want to know more, let me know. But I thought these quotes were pretty motivational. 

"Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness."
- Edward Smith-Stanley 

“Just because you’re not sick doesn’t mean you’re healthy”  
- Author Unknown

"There is no money in healthy people or dead people. The money is in sick people.
- Bill Maher

'Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.
- Hippocrates

'The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
- Thomas Edison

“Every decision we make at the supermarket – what we grow, what we eat – is creating a different future for the land, the farmers, for the diversity of our crops, for the health of our bodies and communities.”

This one really sticks with me for some reason... I guess because I never truly thought of food this way... so bluntly stated.

“The food you eat either makes you morehealthy or less healthy. Those are your options.” 

Take it easy.
